What is World Thinking Day?
Since 1926, Girl Scouts and Girl Guides around the world have spent February 22nd thinking of each other and expressing thanks and appreciation for Scouting around the world. February 22nd was chosen as it was the birthday of both Lord Baden-Powell (who founded Boy Scouts) and his wife, Olave Baden-Powell, who was the World Chief Guide (for Girl Guiding & Girl Scouting). On World Thinking Day, girls from around the world learn about other cultures and (in most countries) make small donations (traditionally pennies) to the Girl Scouting/Guiding movement.
